We invited his girlfriend over for a festive night. We started with deconstructed nachos for dinner (who doesn't love eating chips for dinner!).
Gabrian and I gave the teenagers some space during dinner. Though we were close enough to eavesdrop on everything they said.
After dinner it was present opening time!

The kids were full from dinner so they took a short break to make room for cake. However, they are teenagers and it wasn't long before we were ready to dig in. I had a total Mom fail because I forgot to buy birthday candles (I had assumed we had some in the house).

It was a great way to spend Riley's Birthday. We ate some yummy food and made sure Riley felt special that night. I look forward to seeing this year goes for Riley and (gulp) the 18th birthday will be here before I know it (I better get planning!)
